Message and Small Updates to the fans, January 2013

Hi Moonies:

I’ve decided to format this more as a letter to the fans rather than take more of a journalistic tone. This is probably the 7th time I’ve revised this in the last 6 months. Something terrible happened to me near the end of August and it is probably best to use words like tragic, catastrophe, dehumanizing, awful, and others of that caliber to describe it. It had affected me to the point where, I’d sit down and start to write something, but then the reality of what had happened would hit me and I’d worry my work wouldn’t be as good as it used to be. My friends will all tell you I wasn’t the same person they knew. I had to live a nightmare every single day, and I knew I had to focus on trying to make the best of a really crummy situation and just deal with this. I had to work very tirelessly to put myself in a better situation in January (and thankfully, I am). And a few of my staff members helped me to understand it was okay to take Moon Chase off of the stove. There was very good reason for it – and though it must have been frustrating for all of you, I hope you can understand.
